The folks at IGN have a preview of Wonder Woman #22, out this Wednesday in comic shops everywhere. When we last left our intrepid heroes, they were boom tubing their way out of London and landed in New Genesis, Orion’s home planet. Let’s take a look at what happens next:
First off, we’ve got Chiang for a whole issue again, which is awesome. Doubly so considering that his take on New Genesis looks super cool. Chiang going to town redesigning New Genesis should be a blast.
This new New Genesis is intriguing all around. It seems more authoritarian than past versions, with a less idyllic, utopian vibe than I’m used to seeing. Chiang is clearly channeling Soviet propaganda with the cover, and Highfather seems a mix of iron-fisted and benevolent from what we can see here. I’m curious to get a sense of the wider world in this issue, and the role it will play moving forward.
I do quite like Highfather’s outfit. It’s very Big Barda, which is kind of cool. Man, I hope Big Barda is in this issue. Every comic could use more Big Barda.
Anyway, this issue looks like it’ll be a fun one! I’m excited to see more of what Azzarello and Chiang have cooked up for this offworld adventure.
